Pyrite on Quartz Cast


Out of stock

A rather interesting piece where the quartz cast formed in layers over what I believe to have been calcites. At the termination is fluorite, which appears to incorporate itself, so the paragenesis is not clear to me. The sprinkling of pyrites only on the inside indicate it detached and the pyrites formed last.
